Hi

Thanks for your edit, you need to know that the "theme" tab in preferences does not come with a default Gramps installation , it is something called an addon or plugin not sure you can see it Addon:Themes. The user manual should only reflect a stock standard Gramps without addons. GulliblePangolin (talk) 04:40, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Sanitizing sample data

I noted your enhancement suggestion 11601 for sanitizing/anonymizing sample Trees submitted in association with a bug report.

It piqued my curiosity. So I did some searching.

It appears that there are several Python libraries to support redaction activities. (Chloe McAteer's Revolutionising Redaction- My Final Year Project posting was interesting reading.) However, the top Search results all seemed to target redacting PDFs rather than database samples.

Maybe we just need more sample Trees?

When I built a sample database for a student reporting system, I used cartoon characters... they proved more memorable when writing an example about reporting on interactions between multiple students. I could leverage the established comicstrip relationships: a bullying example report example with Popeye, Bluto, Olive Oyl, Sweet pea, & Poopdeck Pappy required far less explanation than one with generic names.

For charting & filter testing in Gramps however, the relationship were more complex than familiar cartoon families. So I built a Tree where the names were based on the Relationship to the Home Person and IDs were based on Genealogical Numbering Systems.
